Former two-time UFC champion Conor McGregor has welcomed 8-division boxing world champion Manny Pacquiao to his team as the Filipino legend signed with the same sports agency as the MMA fighter.
Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs) signed with Paradigm Sports Management on Wednesday, the same agency handling McGregor, putting the two on the same side of the fence.
McGregor then greeted the Philippines senator on his Instagram account @thenotoriousmma, saying “Welcome to the team Emmanuel” via his IG stories.
The 31-year-old McGregor currently holds a 22-4 professional MMA record, with wins over Eddie Alvarez, Nate Diaz, Jose Aldo, and Donald Cerrone.
He even crossed over to the boxing ring, challenging all-time great Floyd Mayweather Jr. although he was knocked out in 9 rounds.
Pacquiao is still looking for his next opponent in the boxing ring.
